  1. How do you tell if you are singing with resonance because the buzzing I
    feel is very little and my coach says I have to open my mouth wide on
    vowels like ah and oh to gain forward resonance but I can’t feel it with my
    fingers.

  2. As a general rule you try not to raise the larynx for much of anything in
    singing except for very bright, nasal type sounds. I have to sing with a
    raised larynx to imitate Bon Scott of AC/DC. The soft palate is open/up to
    allow the tone to resonate into the back cavity of the nasal
    passage(nasopharynx).

  3. You are really great and need to put better headings on your posts, like
    singing lessons etc so more students can find you. Keep being fantastic i
    love you x

  4. to answer your question: yes and no. Some metal singers use this technique
    of epilglottic tunnel contractions to give their voice more of a growly
    bite – Rob Halford is a prime example of a user of this technique. Some
    singers however use more a rattling of other vocal muscles, some trill the
    soft palate and so on.. There are many ways to make distortion, rattle,
    growl, grunts creaks, etc.

  5. In fact i take that back this feels much more nasal. But you seem like the
    guy to ask on this, im really trying to get some falsetto into my repetoire
    for those soft high notes but i’ve no idea how to start, i’ve been
    listening to freddy mercury on Somebody to Love and he slips into it so
    fluidly all the time and it doesnt sound breathy at all…how is this??? :)
    thanks

  6. @RocktheStageNYC Hah indeed he is! are there any exercises you know of i
    can use to start developing my falsetto? thanks :)

  7. THANKS a LOT. 😀 i have just registered with your site …if i was in NY or
    USA i’d have signed up for lessons…and i cant pay through the net for
    skype lessons cuz our central bank wont allow it…sigh…keep on helping
    us people dude…you rock…

  8. It all depends on how you are producing that grit/distortion. False folds
    or palate trilling. Each one has its own problems in terms of resonance.

  9. Nope. resonance is just adding clearness or treble to your voice so it
    appears to sound clearer and louder. Growl, grit, rasp is another thing
    entirely.

  10. For metal singers, is this what causes the transition between cleaner
    regular vocals and harsher more growly vocals? or are they adding something
    else to make it sound harsher?

  11. is it the pharyngeal resonance that makes Axl Rose’s voice sound aggressive
    like that? did he practice to get that or it’s his natural voice?

  12. @OKComputer134 – high notes come with knowing how to manipulate your voice
    without tension – as for raspiness that can be learned but it takes more
    experimentation than anything else. What would you need to have? 1. a
    natural singing ability and 2. a willingness to spend years practicing
    vocal techniques.

  13. No, there are several ways to resonate your voice. It depends on what sound
    you are trying to make. Playing around with your resonance changes the
    color and texture of your tone. High larynx, low larynx, resonance off the
    soft palate, resonance off the hard palate, resonance behind the tongue
    etc. all change the sound to a degree.

  14. Nope, vocal cord compression in maintaining cord closure as you go forward
    in pitch. “Twang” is a movement of the pharynx & soft palate. Its called
    “pharyngeal contractions”. It lifts the sound into your nasal cavity and
    forward in your mouth adding resonance.
